Jocelyn is a ceramic artist whose sculptures have a fresh sophistication and modern aesthetic that link fine art and craft. Before devoting herself full-time to ceramics in 2001, she spent nearly 20 years as a freelance stylist/editor in Manhattan, New York. Since then, she has developed a signature technique of building black and white porcelain ceramic sculptures to look delicately stitched together. Jocelyn holds a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. She is a juried member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists, New Canaan, Connecticut. She lives in Westport and maintains a studio in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
“When Ken approached me to participate in the Project, I was intrigued. For me, the challenge was how to include the hubcap in a work made with clay, as I am a ceramic artist. I decided to a do a drop mold and use the hubcap as the mold. My work often speaks of fragility and memories. This work speaks of memories past of the beautiful late 1940’s Cadillac.”Jocelyn Braxton Armstrong
